The Black Prism by Brent Weeks

I absolutely love the world Weeks has created in Black Prism. This book is pure fantasy and the saga (part of a trilogy) looks to be exquisite. The magic used in this realm is based on light and color. It is quite unique and different.

Canyons of the Night by Jayne Castle

I preordered Canyons of the Night and was delighted when it arrived. Having read all of the Arcane Society novels, I knew that once I started reading, I’d be unable to stop. I highly recommend this series, if you are looking for a mystery, romance thriller with a paranormal twist. Second Sight by Amanda Quick was the first paranormal book I’d ever read. I read the back cover and said, “Paranormal?” “What?” “Yuck!” My husband brought this book home to me and since I didn’t want to hurt his feelings; I dutifully began reading and thus my love for paranormal books began. This opened the door to all the genres for me. Don’t be afraid to try a new genre, you may be amazed at what you find.
